I m Only Being Honest

Teenage pregnancy, alcoholism, juvenile delinquency, absentee parents, soaring rates of drug addiction? Britain is failing. Over the last twenty years, traditional family values have declined to the point where young adults without guidance marry too early, have children soon after and end up being swamped by the responsibilities of parenthood. The cycle repeats and the problems worsen, impacting on every level of society. Here, in his first book, Jeremy Kyle argues the need for the firm hand and unconditional love that seems so absent from certain young parents. He questions the morals of those who see having children as something of a career; not least the systems that make it so easy to sacrifice personal ambition in favour of a state-sponsored ride. And he maps out an agenda for change, insisting on the importance of personal responsibility and strong government in ironing out our nation?s many creases. With all his trademark candour, Kyle writes about the upheavals in his own life ? his struggles with gambling, his brother?s drug addiction ? alongside the outrageous stories of the people from his often shocking show, to show what can be achieved with a little grit. The result is a hard-hitting look at modern British life that will outrage some, anger others, enliven many, but will no doubt set the debates raging.

Trust is indispensable, yet it can be dangerous. Without trusting others, we cannot function in society, or even stay alive for very long, but being overly-trustful can be a bad strategy too. Trust is pragmatic, but it also has a moral dimension: trustworthiness is a virtue, and well-placed trust benefits us all. In this Very Short Introduction, Katherine Hawley explores the key ideas about trust and distrust. Considerings questions such as 'Why do we value trust?' and Why do we want to be trusted rather than distrusted?', Hawley raises issues about the importance of trust in both the personal and public spheres, including family and relationships as well as politics and society. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly.
